Thanks for the hard work
Any chance of having a scanlines options for the next release?
 save states at some point would be fantastic. I might finally finish ghosts and goblins then :lol:
Sorry if it's bad form to ask for 2 feature requests at once...
I must have a faulty one then. Even after multiple calibrations theres a dead zone bowing in from the edges (using system test)
Also in system test the input can me several mm off (again using the system test). Not so bad with the games and large menu buttons on the inbuilt software.
I am not sure how much the touch screen can be improved via firmware update.
I assume it's one of those things at either works or doesn't. It's nowhere near as sensitive as the DS one.
Maybe the "resolution" of the screen is too low. Anybody check this?
Aside from "Thumbing" icons on the...
That's worrying. Don't know about canadian / U.S law but here in the U.K I am sure you could argue that a failed firmware flash is a manufacturing fault.
It's possible to build in safety checks to an update to cover power outages etc. (check battery level and require power cable connected.)
For the button mapping, from my old speccy days here's the most common used.
Keys )Q "up" ,A "down", O "left" ,P"right" Space "fire".
Kempston joystick. not sure what keys it maps but I think it's numbers and zero for fire.
Arrow keys (the top number row)
A virtual keyboard would be ace too...
Wish it had been a normal USB / Mini USB socket on the Wiz.
Would have made life a lot easier for me.
I keep gadgets for decades, how easy is it going to be to find a replacement cable 10 years down the line?
Maybe someone could port a BBC micro emu.
There's a good one by ZX81.
I wish ZX81 one get involved in the Wiz scene. The guys a porting demon!
Chucky egg on the BBC was ace plus we could play elite too :)
FYI a rom is technically a piece of pirate software.
In the case of mame which plays arcade machines a rom is a digitised copy of the machines hardware.
Because it's technically piracy (although some argue if you own the hardware it's not) sites like this cannot supply them or tell you where to...
The lights on mine are:-
Red: Power off and charging
Blue: Power On (any battery level)
Pink: Power on and charging.
It'll be blue light right up until the power goes off.
Unless i've missed something there's no sign for fully powered battery or low battery apart from the battery icon on main...
the mame folder can go into the GAME folder the roms need to be placed in the "Roms" folder inside the mame one.
I assume you've got some roms from elsewhere. Mame cannot for legal reasons be supplied with them.
Hope this helps
Cheers, about to try out Peejays Basic tutorial.
Had a quick scan of the first pages and I like the way he explains things.
Just got the SDK, bought a dell mini netbook of a mate. Time to get cracking I think...
